American Idol goes Gaga


If you think the ratings have been good for “American Idol” on Fox, just wait until next week (5-11-12). Lady Gaga is going to be the show’s guest mentor for the four finalists.

Gaga, who knows a thing or two about music and self-promotion, will serve as the week’s mentor to James Durbin, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart, who are the remaining contestants.

Having just released her third major album, “Born This Way,” Lady Gaga and her record label are currently promoting the song “Judas” from the CD with the release of a music video featuring Gaga as torn in her affections between two members of a motorcycle gang – Jesus (wearing a crown of metal thorns) and Judas. Needless to say, the song has drawn criticism from various Christian groups. Gaga insists in a USA Today interview that it is meant to “celebrate faith.”

RBR-TVBR observation: Our suggestion is that Ryan Seacrest find himself a meat suit, just to make Gaga feel welcome.
